    My 65 "S" came with these wheel covers but mine were 14's. all I see are 13's in these. Was I mistaking? I thought all "S" came with 14's..?

    Yes, Formula S came with 14" wheels. The wheel covers are nearly the same for 13" except for the diameter of the outer piece. 14", especially the 65 style, are very difficult to find and have been for well over 35 years.

            Are those the stock lug nuts? I remember my stock 65's as being about 3 inches tall. Don't know if they were oem but they were pretty old.

              I think the lug nuts on mine are just over 2 inches. They are original
